Our family begin using Life360 almost 10 years ago when both of our boys were driving and one of them was getting involved with drugs. One son would disappear for days on end and we didn’t know if he was dead or alive. We found Life360 and presented it to our boys asking them to please trust us enough to be able to see where they were just in case the unthinkable might happen so we could at least find them if their phone was still with them. It turned out to be a huge blessing for all of us! Not only in the critical times, but to be able to find each other quickly, give them directions if they are lost, oh and fun things like knowing how far away family is from arriving at our home for the holidays.
We highly recommend this app for family and friends who want to stay in touch. We have loved ones who live in Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia, Maine, etc. It truly makes you feel closer when you can see each other through Life360. And what’s nice is if you don’t want people to see where you are, you just turn off the Wi-Fi on the app and then turn it back on again when you’re ready.
I have been using Life 360 for years. It has saved me from many episodes of panic when my kids were in high school and didn’t respond to calls or texts and also so I know not to text them if I see they are driving. I used it a ton when they were teenagers so I knew they arrived at their destinations etc, but not as much now...I don’t check just to see what they are doing out of respect for their privacy and I tell them I truly don’t care where they are, I only check when I need to know they are safe and they are fine with that. And my husband shares a group with his elderly mother who lives alone so if she isn’t answering her phone he can see if she’s in the house or maybe just at a movie (pre-Covid)! And my husband and I use it too and we do check in and see for example when someone is still at work, on their way home or still at a restaurant with friends so we can not wonder/worry. Life 360 has been so great for my family. Saved me from lots of worry and sleepless nights, especially when my kids were in high school!
Our whole family loves this app. We all love being able to do a quick check to see where everyone is or that everyone has arrived safely. My teens (new drivers) enjoy not having to remember to call or text before they leave somewhere or when they get to their destination because I can just check the app to see for myself. I also really like the fact that when my younger teens are traveling for school or sports or with youth group I can see where they are and know exactly when I need to be at the school or church to pick them up and avoid waiting in the parking lot for long periods of time. I would definitely recommend this app along with open, ongoing conversations with your family about why and how we use it!
One hot summer day in Oklahoma I was way out in the country taking a friend home part of the way back I had a flat on my new car. The place where I bought the car had wheel locks on the tires and they had not given me a key. Many people stop to help but they could not help me. I called my daughter who had no idea where I was or how to find me. She got out her phone and picked me up on Life360.by the time she arrived I was very hot and tried but very happy to see her. She called the place where I bought the car.they sent out a toe truck.needless to say we had the locks taken off. Life360 saved the day.by the way I am 81 years old
This service and company is awesome. As you know we were all kids one day and having someone know where you are may not always feel good but in when a car breaks down or someone is in danger this service is invaluable. Teens with cell phones PAID by there parents should not be allowed to place reviews. I mean the very ones who are provising the stupid phones are getting negativ reviews please how about we take that phone away. I really appreciate all you provide and my teens do also. The app also allows mr to praise my teen when he drives good. This doesnt have to be all bad. Tks agin for all you do. Keep up the good work
Our family began using Life360 about six months ago. It’s comforting and convenient to know where we all are. Initially, there was the novelty of watching the movements of our children in real time. Now it’s just nice to be able to quickly check and see where everyone is. I like being able to see when my son has left to go pick up his sister from school. Or when my husband is passing through the city on the way home. Gives me a chance to ask him to pick stuff up before he leaves. ;) I recently noticed my daughter has discovered a way to link her account with her friends on Life360. So even teens enjoy using it.
I can’t recommend Life360 enough. I love it currently because one daughter is now riding occasionally with new drivers. I trust them 100% but it’s also nice to get a notice that they’ve arrived somewhere safely. My family loves it because they know when I’ve safely made my hour commute to work every day. I recently created zones around schools to know when each child has arrived/left. I recommend this app to Mom friends regularly. In a world where so many things are uncertain Life360 gives my family peace of mind around our safety. Thank you!!
Life360 has multiple uses for me not only as a mom but as a wife. I don’t use it to obsessively follow my family, but when my son is on the long drive back and forth to college, it is reassuring to have this app should he have car trouble or anything else along the way that we would need to locate him. I also have it set to alert me when my husband leaves work so that I can start dinner. The real time driving alerts that also reflect speed are useful as well for many reasons. I truly can’t say enough good things about Life360!
I’ve had this app for a few years now and love it. It alerts me when my child leaves and comes home which is great for when I’m at work. One time the bus missed my sons stop after school. He had to stay on the bus for all of the other stops until it circled back to drop him off at home. I was able to use this and watch him until he got there. My kids even use it sometimes to check where I am! I talked to my sons before downloading the app and they had no problem with it.
I used the paid version for a long time when my teenagers were new drivers. It gave us all a sense of security to know about their safety. Now, the kids and I have a family circle and they use it to see where we are. I’m not on Snapchat so they use it to see where I am too. Noting a malicious way, just to know how far away I am from picking them up from work, sports, etc. my daughter saw I was at the store and texted me some last minute grocery items.
